A Message From Helen
I just wanted to say myself how grateful and supported Henry and I have felt by all the messages of support, love and prayers, and cards, gifts and offers of help we have received since my illness was diagnosed. I cannot put into words the positive effect that knowing that so many people are praying for you has had—particularly if I am having a difficult day. Things are going well with the chemo, and I am now a third of the way through. Thanks you all once again. Helen.
